Extension is expanding its online education and resources to adapt to COVID-19 restrictions.

Episode 17: Key workforce issues

In spring 2018, the University of Minnesota's Extension Center for Community Vitality hosted a workforce symposium. The event brought together researchers and practitioners from both Extension and the University. We encouraged participants to explore the topic of workforce and how to collaborate to better learn about and serve Minnesotans.

In this episode, you will hear from a variety of speakers. They each share their insight on specific issues impacting Minnesota’s workforce.

“There are a lot of innovative things happening in Minnesota.  Communities are working towards community-based solutions.”

- Elizabeth Davis
